Frisken disembarks from the boat, stepping into Elriina.

"Hmmm," he thinks to himself, looking East. "Been awhile since I've been here. A lot sure has changed!"

He approaches a couple of Half-Orcs and a Human near the fountain, but they appear unconcerned with his offer to travel with them, seeming to have better things to do. Of course, the Half-Orcs can barely put two thoughts together, and the Human is a bit...well, stuck-up is a little harsh, since he's good-natured enough, but he does mention that he has business in the town of Kravenwood. He leaves via the Portal.

"Kravenwood! It's been so long since I've been to *those* interesting lands! Too bad I sold my SoulStone in Neverwinter. Oh well! It'll be fun to see what the journey there is like *these* days!"

He makes his way towards the Inn, hoping to earn some gold for a meal with his song. He begins to get his voice in tune:

"It's been years
Since the fears
Of this land I've seen
But all the while
I've always smiled
With mem'ries in between
I travelled far
With sun and star
O'er miles of endless ground
Lookin' to find
Some place that's kind
But that place I'd already found!"

Sajin, sitting at a table alone, drinking, perks up at the sound of another voice singing.

"Hey there! Thass' some good singin'! Join me for a meal and a mead."

Frisken notices the combination of a friendly voice and face. He turns, smiling, and begins walking towards the table.

"Hello then! Well!" he says, waving. "Thanks for the compliment, friend! I haven't been to this land in awhile and let me just say that it's good to be greeted so heartily in one of the best establishments in town when I'm just right off the boat!"

Finishing the sentence just as he gets to the table, he takes a breath.

"I'm Frisken Pockethopp! I'd love to have a brew with someone kind like you!"

Frisken shoves his right hand forward.

*shakes hand*

"Name's Sajin. Ive been trying to land a singing career but it seems there is no regular demand for it. So I have to hunt and adventure to be able to make ends meet."

Mxyptlk enter the inn while the sining goes on. Wow, he thinks! Finally I meet someone that has my same interests here in Eleriina. Maybe I should ask this guy if he wants to form up a duo.

*a figure, obviously drunk, steps out of the shadows*

"Shhhhay", he begins while tossing a gold coin to Frisken. "I could use a bit of entertainment *hik*- not many peoplessshh to kill today. Sing for me, and perhapshh I can shhave you bit of trouble in the future."

*slumps into a char in front of Frisken*

"Certainly Mr. Spears! Of course my going rate is 100 gp per line, just so you know"

Sajin begins to sing what sounds like an improvised tune:

"Oh, Mister Spears, William Spears
Friends and family, lend your ears
Here is the man who has no fears
He is the one drinking all my beers...


HEY! Put my ale down!

*Runs over to snatch his drink back*

Frisken pockets the coin William threw at him.

"Why, thankee sir! HAHAHA!!! What a motley crew we make! Good song, friend Sajin!"

Upon receiving a drink from the waitress, Frisken stands up on the table and holds his mug up, singing to all who can hear.

"Who says that wrongful things
Are what causes all my rings
To always disappear?
I see them very clear!

Some say that throwing dice
Is a nasty vice
And will cost you all your gold
But I still have lots to hold!

And I have never found
That when good drink and friends abound
Gems somehow roll away
I've got more than yesterday!

But although when I sing
I be given many a pretty thing
I think this thing here, 'tis true,
Actually still belongs to you!"

He reaches over behind William's ear, and it appears that he finds one of the rings that William was just wearing. He shows it off to those around.

"Ha-HA! There you are, Sir," he says, smiling cheerily and handing it back to William. "Might want to get that resized!"

"Bravo, Bravo"

Coral Reef cheers loudly and throws gold coins.

*Sajin gathers up the coinds and runs to buy another round of ales for everyone*

"And here's an extra 10 gold to bring another round to the table in 5 minutes!"

*Sajin staggers back to the table and divvies up the ales*

"One fer yoo, one fer me..one fer Spearsie, one for Friskie.
Drink up men the roads can be risky."

*Obviously pleased with himself for the impromptu rhyme, he continues*

"I play this game like a natural.
Opinion? Naw, its just factual.
No one in the lands can outrhyme Sajin
I have all the other poets ragin'!"

*Laughs loudly, and drains his bottle of ale.*

"Oi, Bitch wheres me next round of ale?! Wouldn't have tipped ye if yer just gonna fail!"

Frisken throws his head back and laughs loud, slapping his palm on the table. He then takes a rather large gulp of his ale.

"Now Sayshh...*hiccup* Sajin," he says, steadying his gaze with not a small amount of effort, "you should show a little more reshpect before they kick ya out the beck! Back, I mean! HAH!"

He drains his mug, and slams in down, marking the tabletop.

"Oi! ish right! Thish ish quite a night! But let'sh leave the roadsh to the croaking toadshesheshhh....".

Frisken's head lolls for a second, but then he picks it right up again. Seeing the waitress has finally arrived with the next round, he snatches one out of her hands and proceeds to splash himself in the face.

"HEY! Now THAT'S refreshing! Nothing like a cool cup to wake you up! WOO-HOO! Let's dance!"

He springs up and starts to dance a jig, clapping his hands quickly to the rhythm.

"Hey everyone! Let's sing and dance!
Get up and shake around your pants!
The wine is flowing and so is the beer,
And there's also good spirits all around in the air!"

"Hey-yeay! Anybody got a fiddle?!"

*Sajin jumps on a table and join in song*

"I dont have a fiddle but I do have a lute
Blow on your bottle so it makes a little toot.
Leave all your swords and shields behind
Join us in dance, let's all unwind!"

"Now I know a girl standing right over there
She's got long smooth legs and short cut hair
I wanna ask her to dance - should I dare?
She's a lovely little lass but still I'd need a chair!
I say Hey!
Pretty lady won't you lift me in the air?"

*Coral hands Frisken an enchanted Heavy Crossbow*

"WOW! Thank you kindly sir! I greatly appreciate a gift that has such magical spiff!"

*Frisken bows, then runs off to grab a round of the house specialty for everyone present.*

"A Toast! All for one," he says, pointing to the glass and himself, "and all for us! CHEERS!" He drains his mug.

*hick*
